Monroe, GA – Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) today invited high school students throughout the 10th District to participate in the 2021 Congressional Art Competition. Students in grades nine through twelve may submit two-dimensional entries, such as paintings, drawings, photos, computer-generated art, collages, and prints, to his office for consideration. The first-place entry will represent Georgia’s 10th District for one year in the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
“Each year, it’s my pleasure to join my colleagues across the country in hosting the Congressional Art Competition to highlight our talented students,” Hice said. “In addition to having the winning entry displayed in the halls of Congress, I am thrilled that this year there will be an in-person reception in Washington, D.C. for the nation’s top artists. The first-place winner will receive two round-trip plane tickets and the honor of a lifetime. I hope that high school students will take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity.”
